This is the best and the most professional physical therapy I have been apart of. From the communication and updates on the app, all the way to the actual therapy. I have immediate results and the exercises Doc had me doing were simple yet very effective! I love this company and look forward to every appt! Thank you Optimize!!!
happy people talk: a note from nicole klein-richter
My neck has had limited mobility for YEARS, and even after surgery, was still stiff. After working with Dr. Zaki and Optimize , I can safely say that I have not only gained full mobility, but my life back as well. No matter what hurts, I walk out of my appointment feeling 100 times better than when I walked in. Highly recommend Dr. Zaki to anyone needing true PT.
happy people talk: a note from Kevin Pearn
Zaki is a magician when it comes to physical therapy. On one occasion I had a lower back injury where I could barely get out of bed, let alone get up & walk around. Legit thought I might need surgery or that I'd slipped a disc or something. 30mins into a session with Zaki & I instantly felt 90% normal & could walk around again without pain. He's a true master of his craft.
happy people talk: a note from trust fitness
Dr. Afzal is a wealth of knowledge and the only therapist in town I trust with my personal training clients. He truly understands the intersection of training, movement, and therapy. As a personal trainer, it has been very hard over the years to find outside resources to direct clients to when their needs go outside of my scope; I no longer have that issue.

Optimize physical therapy is truly the best way to get results. After numerous back and neck surgeries, Dr. Zaki keeps me active and playing the sport I love baseball (catcher). If you need physical therapist or just want to be the best you call Optimize.
